REELING from a player training boycott, Dynamos are faced with another quandary of the possibility of failing to travel to the Democratic Republic of Congo for Saturday’s Caf Champions League first round, second leg tie against AS Vita due to unavailability of funds.

The situation at the Harare giants has now strayed out of hand at a time when they have a poor away record in the Champions League in recent years.

Players are refusing to train in protest over unpaid allowances dating back from last season.

This has seen the team losing valuable training time ahead of the crucial tie in Kinshasa where they arrive with a 0-0 first leg result.

Dynamos are scheduled to leave for DRC on Friday and club secretary general Webster Chikengezha said they are yet to raise money for airfares to fulfill the AS Vita fixture.

“We need about US$30,000 for the DRC trip and we are running around to secure the funds. It is not a secret that we do not have money at Dynamos. But we are trying our best,” Chikengezha said.

They traveled by road to Botswana for the preliminary round’s second leg against Mochudi Center Chiefs where they drew 1-1.

This was an extension of their Champions League away winless streak to nine games.

They have failed to win even against unknown quantities like Lesotho Correctional Services who beat them 1-0 in Lesotho last season.

Their last away victory was ironically posted in DRC in 2010 when they beat Saint Eloi Lupopo.
